The Community Sporting and Recreation Facilities Fund (CSRFF) is now open.
The purpose of the program is to provide financial assistance to community groups and local governments to develop basic infrastructure for sport and recreation. The program aims to maintain or increase participation in sport and recreation with an emphasis on physical activity, through rational development of good quality, well-designed and well-utilised facilities.
Through CSRFF, the Western Australian Government will invest $12 million in the 2021–2022 financial year towards the development of quality physical environments in which people can enjoy sport and recreation. The maximum grant offered for standard grant applications is one third of the total estimated project cost (excluding GST) up to a maximum grant of $2 million.
The Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries (DLGSC) will assess the total eligible cost of your project (excluding GST) from the information provided.
Some applications will be eligible for up to one half of the project cost. This eligibility will be measured against key development principles. Applicants will have to show their eligibility through the development bonus section of the application form. Meeting Development Bonus criteria will not automatically ensure the applicant is eligible for 50% of the project cost. Applicants will need to return unspent funds to DLGSC in accordance with the terms of the grant agreement.
